Top Ten Tuesday: Female authors and their book series I need to read

Top Ten Tuesday book meme

Top Ten Tuesday is held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week the topic I am continuing the theme from last week with those series I haven’t yet got to and very much want to — all by female authors.

And no, still haven’t found a book oracle yet. Boo.

Stella Rimington and Liz Carlyle 

I did try to read the first in this series, but couldn’t get into the book — but i haven’t yet read a review of this series where the reviewer doesn’t like it — AND — she was Director General of MI5. Which means she’s got the experience to be writing about spies and the like. I need to try this again, I do.

Val McDermid and Tony Hill & Carol Jordan 

And everything else she writes, to be honest. Here’s the thing though, I read the first in this series and it was brutal, and maybe made me reluctant to go back — but there’s so much else of hers to get to as well.

Patricia Cornwell and Kay Scarpetta

I used to read these religiously ages ago, and I can’t remember why I stopped. They were always entertaining and I need to go back to them…. at 24 books long. Sighs

Sharon Bolton and Lacey Flint

Mercifully there are only four books thus far in the series and I LOVED the first one, and lordy I need to get back to it because the next thing I know it will be at something-teen and it will be too late to catch up.

Tana French and the Dublin Murder Squad 

Oh, I so wanted to like this series — but I couldn’t quite make it through the first book. I want to try again though because that might’ve just been a mood thing and also it’s 6 books long, so I can actually start at the beginning. Again. Or I should just maybe save myself the heartache and go straight to 6. Maybe.

So there you have it, some female authors and their series I would like to read.
